Personal Hobby

Over the Christmas Holidays of 2020 where the whole world were in lockdown due to the pandemic, I had the urge to start up my hobby of learning animations again. During the late 2000’s, I was learning to use Macromedia Flash (now known as Adobe Animate) and I created some basic animations.

I uploaded one of my early animations to my YouTube Channel, at the time Halloween was approaching and it seem fitting to create something for it.

Whilst I was looking through some Animations Tutorials on YouTube, I came across some channels showing their 3D work done using Blender. This really interested me and something that I would love to try out, what I love about Blender is that unlike Adobe, this is FREE!

Once downloaded and installed, I can honestly say, I did not have a clue how to use it. I was disappointed because it was something I wanted to try, so I ended up posting out requests for help on Social Media, thankfully many responded with tips and directions to go down into and following some useful tutorials, I started to get the hang of Blender.

However, almost a year down, I am still learning and where I can, trying to fit in my me time to continue learning. I do envy those who has more time in the world to get so far with their skills but maybe they have more determination in getting more done in little time.

Although I am more keen to carry on learning Blender, I have not ruled out continuing with Adobe Animate and Adobe After Effects. Just right now, I don’t see why I should pay a monthly subscription for both when I am not currently using them but as said, I will return to them in the future.
